Let the city be your classroom

Arcadia in London is an affordable and innovative way to study in one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe – and one of the most popular cities for study abroad. You can choose to study within a familiar American university system by taking all your courses at the Arcadia London Center, or you can mix at least one Arcadia taught course with electives from our British partner institutions.  

Arcadia faculty use London itself as the classroom, taking you into the city streets to bring your studies to life with the real communities and places you are learning about. Your course choice includes business, politics and history to community health, communications, environmental studies and more.

You also have a wide choice of courses from our partner institutions:

It’s incredible to be somewhere where so many significant things have happened with Science, Literature, Art, etc. I loved being able to discover so many things in London ”
